Pastor Shirley Caesar, pastor and godmother to Whitney Houston, recently spoke about witnessing the power of God in the late singer’s life.
Houston, who died Feb. 11 at 48 years old, has been the topic of conversation for Caesar, who has honored the late singer’s memory in various media appearances. In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Caesar recalled an incident in which Houston started speaking in tongues at pastor and gospel singer Kim Burrell’s church in Houston, Texas weeks before her death.
“Kim said that the power of God fell on Whitney Houston and she ran all around the church…and then she fell out on the floor and just began to speak in tongues,” Caesar explained before crying. “For about 30 minutes (she was) lying there and praising the Lord. This girl knew that Jesus loved her.”
Despite Houston’s devotion to Christ, Caesar said her goddaughter may have been battling a demonic force. However, the singer said Houston’s death may have been a sign that God wanted to separate her from her addiction.
